In Northern Arkansas, summertime means time outside particularly near a body of water. Whether you are visiting a pool, river, creek or lake, you need to keep safety in mind.
It is important to be alert and aware of your surroundings.
Here are a few simple water safety tips compiled by NARMC Providers:
1. Start swimming lessons for children at an early age.
2. Always wear a life jacket around water or on boats.
3. Closely supervise children when around bodies of water.
4. Learn CPR.
We hope you have a safe summer!
